Meet Hip Hop Musicians "Jamo Gang" from California & New York

Jamo Gang started out as Ras Kass & El Gant writing and recording songs on the spot to new J57 beats at his Brooklyn studio in October of 2015. Their incredible chemistry quickly turned into a side-group for fun, which then turned into a serious group that lead to the three teaming up to create more than an album's worth of music by early 2016, with a push from DJ Premier to do so.

Jamo Gang spent majority of 2016 & 2017 fine-combing their songs with J57 adding post production; as the three brought in a few hand-selected guest appearances for their debut, self-titled EP which is due out on January 30th.

Jamo Gang’s sound is of a signature New York knit, but they’re far from a boxed-in throwback. There’s a 90s sound at work here, but they’re not chained to it; J57’s soundscapes are anything but antiquated. His drums crush souls while Ras and Gant’s raw lullabies send them careening into the concrete.

Meet Hip Hop & Graphic Artist "Buddhakai" from Denver, Colorado

Here's Buddhakai in a nutshell! Started making music in 1996 and put together an amazingly talented group called, Allied Forces, AF Entertainment. With money raised from selling cocaine, weed, and ecstasy, I built an awesome recording studio in my mom's basement. This became everybody's GO-TO spot. By the year 2000, we independently launched an album called, Trinity, tha second coming, which gave us a ton of street red and heavy local celeb status. 
Unfortunately, the drug dealing and the music business opened the doors to the dark side for me. I became a cocaine / meth addict and ended up using my music as a draw for fans and artists to fund my addiction instead of focusing on all of the amazing opportunities that came my way. 
We had amazing people like Steven Oaklander, from Priority Records, who invested a lot into me and my music... Karim, who worked alongside Russel Simmons at DefJam, who used to send me a ton of Phat Farm gear for shows and promos (that I ended up …
